ABOUT THE SHOW:
Join the Winter Ensemble to dig into one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. As You Like It is a celebration of romance and the imaginative power of theatre. On the run in the forest of Arden, Shakespeare’s brilliant heroine Rosalind dons the clothes of a man, and teaches young Orlando how to love and why. As Rosalind and Orlando become closer, they experience the power of creating your own universe with those you love, and the force of self-invention. All the world is literally a stage in this delightful, mature, and surprisingly avant-garde comedy.
The Winter Ensemble is a tuition-based program. SYT is committed to offering opportunities to all students with an interest in Shakespeare. Financial aid is available to all - please don’t hesitate to get in touch with questions about financial aid, payment plans, or scholarships!
